Bethesda Softworks received the final version of the art book which will be included in the collectors edition of Skyrim. This has allowed them to post a photo on the Bethblog
and handily provided in this news post.
The Collectors Edition contains a cloth map of Skyrim, 200 page art book, 30cm (12 inch for our American friends) statue of Alduin the dragon, a large novelty box - shown here with the Xbox360 label - and fortunately a copy of the game and manual.
This week we received a final version of The Art of Skyrim Official Art Book – the massive, 200+ page companion to the Skyrim Collector’s Edition. To celebrate the affair, marketing artist Lindsay Westcott took a new photo of all the CE contents — including a first peek at the pages of the artbook.
In the coming days, we’ll be sharing more from the artbook… keep your eyes peeled!
The Skyrim Collectors Edition can be ordered for $150 dollars. However Tesnexus
is reliably informed
that it has largely sold out in Australia due to game store staff members ordering all the copies for themselves.
I have found from discussions with games store staff that they got a heads up and were buying them all up for themselves, friends, and in the worst cases for later ebay sales. One store, that I wont name, had a manager inform me that they were sorry they couldn’t sell me one but how awesome it was that they were able to get 5… yeah felt awesome I can tell you
Skyrim will be available for sale in approximately 48 days.
